Did you know that
there is a repair mechanism, in our body, in our cells or
to put it more correctly in our genetic structure. With the
help of this mechanism we can continue to live without
problems upto a certain extent.
This means that we
owe much to these repair mechanisms which help our first
genetic formation in the mother’s womb and afterwards in
the following years they help to keep our body straight
which will take us through life for 70-80 years both
qualitatively and quantitatively.
If, these mechanisms
had not been present, then our personal ‘’Genome’’, namely
our genetic structure, would be damaged rapidly and our body
would be bombarded from outside in different ways. The
various organs in the body would loose their functions
rapidly or the highly fit bodies would turn into monsters.
It can be hard to
imagine a community consisting of humans in whom the
genetic repair mechanism is out of use. In some human
beings some parts of this mechanism are out of order so,
there are various illnesses that come out due to this
fact.(they have various kinds of illnesses/problems).
Then, what is this
repair mechanism? When the DNA which supports the functions
of our body and helps to keep our body functioning well is
damaged, then the DNA maintenance team starts to act
‘’....They cut off
the damaged portions of the DNA and leave them out and
replace them with new pieces similar to the original’’.
This is what Orhan Bursalý says in his article ‘’Protect
your genetics’’ in the newspaper ‘’Cumhuriyet’’.
On the other hand,
in the newspaper Akţam (dated January 9th,2000) I had
referred to similar points in my article named
‘’Sexuality and the Genes’’ and with the analysis I
had made I had brought a little clarity to this repair
While I am stating
my opinion regarding this subject I am thinking that I have
placed at least a building stone like Mr.Orhan Bursali (for
the explanation of this subject).
Briefly, my article
was based on ‘’the thing necesary for building up
sexuality’’. Here, are the quotes from some important

important role in correcting the defects in the DNA,

generations that have come into being approximately 4
billion years ago could continue their lives in a healthy
way by means
of sexuality in spite of all the changes that have taken
place over time.
Sexuality, has also provided the means to unite the genetic
data transferred from the mother and the father and in
addition to these it enabled the additional information
(apart from the characteristics of the parents) to become
manifest in the following new generations.
To say it shortly, sexuality is a very advanced, developed
system which repairs the genes that carry all the
information about the existence, which keeps the mutations
and the defects and the disorders under control so that the
genes are preserved in a healthy manner. As a result, that
species, in spite of all the micro and the macro changes can
survive and keep on repairing themselves from the pool of
the common characteristics and have new formations every
Meanwhile, there is
another subject which I feel I have to mention is the point
that the repair of the gene is not arranged solely by the
Sexuality is a proof
of this. This factor, being an influence coming from
outside has been successful in doing the thing which the
internal repair mechanism was unable to do.
This shows that the
interference made from outside is quite important. The most
significant example for this is seen in Mysticism, in the
subject of Zhikr. The individual, by repeating certain
words, may program the cells that have not been programmed
or he can bring the less programmed ones (the weaker ones)
upto a certain level or repair the defective group of cells
and turn them into their original states.
In my discussions I
was telling my opinion and I used to say that one cell could
program the other by a pressure coming from outside.
However, I have learned that once a cell programmed it
cannot be reprogrammed again, but only the ones that are
idle could be programmed. However, this idea did not seem
to be so logical to me.
This idea about
‘’the empty cells’’.
How can such a thing
happen? Then, this is not in accordance with the decree that
says ‘’Each one acts in the direction of its own

couldn’t help thinking about this. This was a difficult
criticism which should not be overlooked, but I had to
